Is Loss Of Appetite A Symptom Of Strep Throat
Does alegra d or amoxicillian cause loss of appetite. I am taking them for strep throat and sinusitis?
Strep? The last 3 days I've had loss of appetite and low fever-99.5 f. Today I have a mild sore throat. Glands not swollen. I've never had strep before.
Sudden onset of sore throat, wheezing, loss of voice, Fluid in ears but no runny nose fever or any other symptoms could this be strep throat?
Unlikely: Most probably it's a viral infection leading to this constellation of symptoms, unlikely to be streptococcal pharyngitis from the outset, although bacteria may kick in later, but symptoms will change. Saline nasal washes, salt water gargles for decongestion remain the mainstay for treatment though, together with voice rest,fluids,bronchodilator for wheezing if you're prescribed one, c MD if worse ...Read more
Strep throat: Actually, not. A strep throat affects the pharynx and tonsils and is caused by bacteria. On the other hand, laryngitis involves the larynx or voice box and is mainly cuased by viruses. You develop a sore throat with strep and hoarness of the voice (or loss of voice in extreme cases) with laryngitis. ...Read more
Every time i swallow my spit it feels like something is scratching it, is this a symptom of strep throat?
Maybe: New throat symptoms can be from strep throat infection (antibiotics are needed), a cold or mild flu (antibiotics are not used), or from another cause such as allergies or irritants. Usually, a person sees the doctor if the throat symptom is bothersome, recurrent, or doesn't go away in a day or two (mainly to check for strep throat). Throat lozenges for a couple of days may lessen throat symptoms. ...Read more
Similar but: Both cause very sore throat with swelling and fever. Both can be diagnosed readily with a rapid test. Mono rapid test is less accurate. Mono significant systemic symptoms such as fatigue, sleepiness, nausea, and the swelling tends to be more severe and more dramatic appearing. Strep gets better much faster and does justify antibiotics in children and teens. http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/strep-throat/basics/symptoms/con-http://www.pennmedicine.org/encyclopedia/em_PrintArticle.aspx?gcid=000591 ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I'm on day 3 of moxicillin for strep throat, after a visit to an urgent care center. So far no symptom relief. should I be concerned?
Call your doctor: Strep throat is caused by the group A streptococcus bacteria but is very similar to viral pharyngitis. A rapid strep test is performed to determine if Streptococci are present. Antibiotics do not work for viral illnesses. The test is not 100% accurate however. If no improvement a throat culture can sort out if it is viral or you have resistant bacteria and may need a different antibiotic. ...Read more
Was treated for strep throat 3 weeks ago. Tongue still painful now and i noticed a growth way in back on tongue. Loss of taste. Burning on tongue.
